Re: Which are MLC / TLC MicroSD cards?

Smiley Happy   Hi KSP,


I'm sorry, but do not worry, because SDSDQM-008G-B35 (SanDisk 8GB microSDHC card), is excellent.


With respect to the cell structure, thought so, because SanDisk does not specify the topic (in card) on the official website.


But if, in SSD, links:


The company Kingston, does not specify the topic (in card), on their official website.

The company Panasonic, has an industrial line (in SD card, made in Japan).

Re: Which are MLC / TLC MicroSD cards?

Does anyone have an update to this? I’ve been trying to find out if the Extreme, Extreme Pro, and/or Extreme Plus microSD cards use TLC or MLC.


If what this thread is saying is that Sandisk does NOT disclose whether they are using MLC or TLC, that’s really frustrating to me as a consumer.


For cheaper SD cards, not disclosing this detail is fine, but for high-dollar cards this is an important question IMO. MLC tends to last longer and write faster than TLC. Beyond benchmarks, MLC NAND tends to give better real-world performance, especially in regards to writing. As this is an investment, I want the better durability and faster speeds of MLC, and I am willing to pay for it.
